How a Real Estate Agent & Business Coach Made Their First $10K Month

 

Hello friends! Welcome back to the show. Today I'm thrilled to be bringing you two of our amazing Cubicle to CEO Members, Sarah Matson and Ashley Lew. They're on today sharing their experience being a part of The Cubicle to CEO Membership, and how they've used our Consistent Clients Cashflow System (that we teach inside the membership) to make their first $10K month! I think it's so much fun to learn from other entrepreneurs who are working alongside us in the trenches as I call it. It's also so amazing to see how two entrepreneurs from completely different industries can see success using the same system! So, I want you to look at today's episode as a case study of how these two in their businesses, and what it looks like to accelerate the growth of your business.

 Hang out with us inside our free Facebook group, The Cubicle to CEO Podcast Lounge!

Welcome back to another solo episode! This week's episode is on a really juicy topic that has completely transformed the way that I do business. It is the Dunning Kruger effect. I was first introduced to this concept by a friend & business mentor of mine, and it has radically changed the way that I look at my behavior patterns around business. If you struggle with shiny object syndrome, or feel like you start things but never finish them, this episode is a short discussion on this topic where I break down why this happens, how you can avoid it, and show up for your own life.

We have an exciting guest on the show today, friends. I’m thrilled to be sharing my conversation with the inspiring Jordan Lee Dooley. Jordan is a National Bestselling Author, Speaker, Creative Business Educator, and Host of the Top Rated Podcast, SHE. This Indiana Native is kind of a superstar - it’s funny because I actually went to Target for some groceries after our interview and happened to walk by Jordan’s face on the cover of her debut book, Own Your Everyday, on display in the book section. Jordan’s mission is to help people find and live their purpose through her online education platform called The Own It Academy, which is designed to help creative women start and grow small businesses from home - much like how Jordan got her start as an Etsy shop owner selling her calligraphy work. On her impressive list of accomplishments includes serving on Liberty University’s School...

Single Mom Start-Up: How To Grow + Bootstrap Your Small Business When You’re Not Yet Profitable

 

You know we love bringing you the wisdom of successful entrepreneurs who have - so to speak - already made it, but we also think there is so much value in learning from entrepreneurs who are actively working in the trenches to build their business. I recently got to chat with my sweet friend, Lauren Strain, a 29 year old single mom and founder of newly launched company, “Pollumination", a collection of eco-chic candles + ceramics. 

Lauren actually created a few custom tumblers for me before, and besides the fact that her products and packaging are so beautifully made, she also has a huge heart for giving back. A portion of all her proceeds goes to the Pollinator Partnership in San Francisco, California to support bee conservation. 

Lauren shares with us the hardest parts of transitioning from a service based business as a photographer to now a products based business, why she chose to make giving back a key element of her business model from the beginning,...
